Few other camcorders offer so much for so little: a 20X optical zoom, widescreen recording, and image stabilization all set it apart from all other cams in the sub-$600 price range. A camcorder is only as good as the video it captures, and in that regard the Elura 100 is a great deal. Price: $499. Sony MDR-EX71SL earbuds In today’s times, there are few gadgets you can’t leave your home without them. One of such gadget is your earbuds.

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is an annual electronic extravaganza that features several budding as well as seasoned tech geeks showing of their new inventions. While most of these inventions would be considered normal, there would be a couple of weird inventions that would stand out in the crowd. CES 2014 had its share of weird gadgets doing the rounds too, of which we have selected the top five. Personal Thermal Imaging Device Here is a device that would work wonders for ghost lovers, as well as those who are afraid of them. The FLIR ONE is a personal thermal imaging device that can be fitted as a case for android phones like the iPhone 5 and 5s. Short for Forward Looking Infrared, the device comes with a thermal and visual camera that can scan heat signatures in the nearby surroundings. Therefore, there is no room for ghosts to hide around you anymore. Other highlights include a battery that can also be used to power your phone when needed. Mother No one has more powerful, watchful eyes like your mother. Maybe that is what prompted manufacturer Sen.se to call its latest innovation “Mother”. Looking like a cross of a Russian doll and a bowling pin, Mother is a wireless gadget that can receive and transmit information to and from several sensors called Motion Cookies placed around the house. The cookies help track activity in each room of the house, while the device can also track individual eating, hygiene and fitness habits. Slouch Zapper If you find yourself slipping into a bad posture quite often, this device may be just what you want. The Lumo Lift can be fitted underneath your collar, shirt or undergarment and monitor your posture constantly. The moment it detects you slouching, it will zap you aka start vibrating to warn you. Definitely, a steal for posture fanatics we say. iPhone Stun Gun Case If you were a woman living alone in a country like India, you would probably need this device. Designed and developed by Yellow Jacket, the device is a standard iPhone case that doubles as a detachable stun gun, capable of dishing out a charge of 650000 volts. The model is designed to fit iPhone 5 and 5S, and comes in four different colors. The case is also capable of recharging your phone. Therefore, that is double the advantage. iPhone 3D Viewer How about viewing 3D videos in your iPhone? That is what this gadget would give you. Called Poppy 3D, the device looks like a binocular, can be attached to your iPhone and can be used to record as well as watch 3D videos with ease. All you need to do is place your iPhone in a slot located at the top of the device, which then splits the images into two different parts with the help of mirrors in order to facilitate 3D viewing.
The Consumer Electronic Show held in Las Vegas recently had over 20,000 new gadgets and products being introduced by nearly 3200 exhibitors. The products ranged from high tech garments, gaming devices and household utilities to ultra-high definition TVs and connected cars etc. The conference also had a few intriguing golf innovations making the rounds among avid golfers. Here are five such golfing innovations one would have to look forward to in the coming months. Solar Powered Cooler Playing golf on a hot summer day can leave you drenched in sweat and your throat parched with thirst. The first thing your body would want during this period would be a nice, cold drink. Luckily, that can be made available by the solar powered cooler, which acts as a mini fridge on the green. Running on solar power, the cooler lets you have access to your favorite drinks when you want them. The cart also comes with a USB port for charging smartphones and is priced at $1200. Breffo Spiderpodium If you love to play golf, but love your smartphone equally as much, you would probably understand the dilemma a golfer faces when he/she needs to put down his/her cellphone while playing. Most pushcarts come with juice holders and not smartphone holders. The Spiderpodium is a unique gadget that would let you place your smartphone aside safely while playing. It consists of legs made out of steel-based alloy. You can bend the flexible legs around your smartphone and then latch it onto the cart’s handle bar or steering wheel. This way, your phone would stay safe and clear of mishaps as you play. Zephone Smartwatch One can find a plethora of golf GPS watches in the market. However, the Zephone is a smartphone that is actually integrated in a wristwatch. Designed by Kronoz from Swizterland, the watch is powered by the Android Jelly Bean, thus offering the wearer complete access to entire list of golf GPS apps available in the Google Play Store. The phone also comes with a SIM card slot, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, speaker, microphone and a pedometer. Epsom Swing Analyzer The printer manufacturer Epsom is expanding its base of operations to include more swing sensors and wearables. Case in point: the Epsom Swing Analyzer which when attached to the club’s grip handle allows the gadget to monitor your wrist movements. This in turn would enable the gadget to record your swing power and pattern, and compare it with those of professional golfers. Matrix Audio Some of us like to listen to music as we play. However, how do we carry an audio system with us all the time, let alone listen to our favorite tracks without disturbing others around us? Matrix Audio might provide a possible answer. The company’s Qube 2 happens to be the smallest Bluetooth stereo speaker that can be attached to even a golf towel clip. The speaker can last for almost 8 hours and is just about 3 inches long.
The annual Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas this year was nothing less than amazing, and like previous shows had plenty to offer for tech enthusiasts.

CESS 2014 had an interesting range of smart watches at display in Las Vegas. Many smart watch manufacturers came up to display new as well as updated versions of their existing models. Given below are some of the more promising exhibits in this category. Meta Devices Considered the most luxurious smart watches in the market, the Meta devices showcased at CESS 2014 looked more like wristwatches than actual smart watches. The watches were made of stainless steel and came with leather straps that enhanced their sophisticated look. Technology wise, though, these Meta devices offer the same features as any other standard smart phone in the market. It was their look that pulled in the crowds. Magellan Echo Smart Sport Magellan Echo Smart Sports has decided to include a few more colors and sporting app categories to its already existing line of smart watches. Some of these apps include skiing, gold, hiking, etc. The new colors added to the line are grey and dark blue.

The Consumer Electronics Show happens to be the biggest trade show in all of America and tends to attract millions of attendees every year. This year was no different. Attendees at the show were thrilled to see a whole lot of new electronic inventions showcased by different exhibitors. Out of all these exhibits, here are some of the most notable products and applications revealed at the show. Driverless Cars Introduced by French company Induct at CESS 2014, Navia is a driverless shuttle. The car is capable of driving at 12.5 mph on a pre-programmed route. The car is programmed to slow down or come to a stop if it senses movement in front of it. Induct described the car’s use as best for enclosed roads in places like airports and university campuses etc. Audi also displayed its automatic parking feature. A small button in a smartphone app would activate the program in the car’s built in computer. With the use of multiple cameras, the computer would then angle the car into the tightest of parking spots with ease. What is better, you can make the car park itself after getting out of it. Sugar and Chocolate Printers 3D systems displayed its unique ChefJet, the first 3D food printer approved for restaurants. The device makes use of water to melt sugar or chocolate into very complex shapes that can be impossible to achieve by hand. While the samples handed out by the company did not taste that good, restaurateurs are excited about the prospect of using the ChefJet in their kitchens. Enveloping Photo Booth Gamers would surely love this one, for the prospect of seeing yourself in a game rather than an action figure is soon going to become a reality. The Nikon booth at CESS 2014 featured a unique arrangement by Alexx Henry, a Los Angeles based photographer. Henry set up 68 inward facing cameras inside a small tent. All the cameras would click anyone simultaneously, as soon as he/she will step into the tent, called the xxArray Photo Booth. Then a computer processes these images to render a 3D image of the subject, which can be imported into games as the main protagonist. Head Mounted Display Sony displayed its head mounted display in the wearable electronics section at CESS 2014. The device featured a large pair of glasses that can be strapped on to get the perspective of being a motorcycle driver who is racing through an English countryside. A sensor attached to the strap tracks the head movements of the wearer in order to adjust the wide-angle picture appropriately. Hence, if the person looks down, he/she would see the pavement speeding by. Looking up would make him/her see the clouds while looking to the left or right would enable him/her to see the crowds cheering the racers. UV Sensing Wristband Showcased by French company Netamo, every skin conscious individual would want this device. The Netamo June UV sensing wristband straps onto the wrist and comes with a gemstone that is used to measure the amount of exposure the body has had to the UV rays so far. The data thus collected is then sent in the form of readings and alerts (in case the exposure limit is nearing) to the wearer’s cellphone via Bluetooth.
